What do you want to see while you wait?
On bugzilla.mozilla.org, when you run a search, if your browser supports “server push,” Bugzilla will show you an interim page while the search runs. Currently it shows an animated dino head (left) chomping on bugs, and the text “Please wait while your bugs are munched retrieved.” It’s cute and all, but it’s kind of getting old. And being that the page is entirely a cosmetic thing designed to entertain you while you wait, we should change it out once in a while anyway. We’re planning to upgrade Bugzilla tomorrow night, and it’s the perfect opportunity to spice it up a little.
If you have other ideas, or can implement one of the existing ones, feel free to post them on the bug. I have a couple ideas, but no artistic skills to implement them…
- A Mozilla dino standing there waiting for bugs – Buggie walks over to him carrying a basket of critters and hands it to him.
- Buggie standing there with his hand shielding his eyes from the sun, turning his head back and forth like he’s looking for something…
Maybe if we have several of these things, it could randomly pick one each time.
